Need a Graphic Designer? At 99designs.com a community of graphic designers competes to create the perfect design for your project - logos, web sites, marketing materials, product labels or any other graphical element. As the largest marketplace for crowdsourced graphic design with over 185,000 members, 99designs.com enables businesses to quickly and cost effectively source custom graphic design work without the risk - you see the designs before you buy.

To launch a design project simply describe: who you are, what kind of design you need and how much you are willing to spend. The design community then begins submitting custom designs to your project. The average project is open for 7 days and sees about 100 custom design submissions. At the end you choose the design you like best and leave owning that design and having a relationship with that designer. If you don't like any of the designs we give you 100% of your money back, including our fees, so there is ZERO risk.
